Incompetent cervix is a condition when the cervix opens in the second trimester due to pressure from growing baby and happens in women with weak cervical tissue. The issue is not very common and hence there is very limited awareness out there for this condition. Since symptoms are subtle and often overlap with other pregnancy symptoms, it often goes undiagnosed until it is too late to save the pregnancy.
Here is a heart touching story of a mum who lost her baby due to this cervical condition. She wants to raise awareness about this condition, so pregnant women are more watchful of their symptoms and act on time that may save their baby.
